Guest lecturers from Greater Manchester Police, visit the team for this evenings training session

This evening we welcomed two guest lecturers to the team from Greater Manchester Police, Chris Moody (A long serving former Team member, and retired GMP Officer) who now works for GMP in a civilian capacity, and is a GMP Missing Person Search Manager, and PC Ian Crossley, a GMP Police Search Advisor and Missing Person Search Manager from GMP Specialist Search Unit.

They both attended to give two different presentations to the twenty nine Bolton MRT members present this evening at our Ladybridge Hall Base / HQ.

Chris Moody gave all a very detailed presentation on note taking at search incidents (and indeed at all incidents) and the relevance of these to criminal proceedings should the incident develop in that manner, including the disclosure of unused material in relation to major incidents.

Chris very kindly provides this input to the team on a bi annual basis, as part of our on going search awareness training.

PC Ian Crossley then talked to the assembled team members outlining the latest protocols and procedures regarding Disaster Victim Identification (DVI) within Police Forces nationwide.

The team would like to thank Chris and Ian for their presentations this evening and their support of the Bolton MRT, which further reinforces the many close links we have with Greater Manchester Police.(With similar strong links within Lancashire Constabulary)
